Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law

January 2015 Archives

Can you be terminated without notice in California?


California employees rely on their jobs in order to get income. Without that income they may not be able to support their families and meet all their financial obligations. For this reason, when someone is terminated from their job, they are usually very upset. In some cases, the termination may be expected; however, other times the termination comes out of the blue. This can lead some people to question if a person can be terminated from a job in California without notice.

With our help, prevent a hostile work environment


California workers have certain rights when it comes to the workplace. These rights help to make sure that workers are not subject to discriminatory treatment while at work. They also help to protect people against other illegal or unwanted behavior. In particular, when it comes to sexual harassment, California employment laws prevent employers from allowing a hostile work environment.

The California Family Rights Act


There are times when a California employee needs to take a leave of absence from their job. In some cases, people risk their job in order to take this leave. However, there are times when a person's job is protected during a leave. Under federal law, the Family Medical Leave Act can sometimes provide protection to certain employees when they need to take a leave for medical reasons. Similarly, under California state law, the California Family Rights Act protects employees who need to take medical leave.

Is sexual harassment training required in California?


Recently, this blog highlighted the story of a California executive who was fired for allegedly sexually harassing employees. In that case, the former chief executive officer of American Apparel was accused of having inappropriate relationships with several employees, and the company thought it was best to end its relationship with the man, who was the company's founder.

California CEO fired after sexual harassment claims


Being subjected to sexual harassment in the workplace can be very damaging to an employee. The employee may have to go to work while dealing with the shame, embarrassment and fear that sexual harassment can create. Some employees may have no idea how to react to sexual harassment at work, and therefore they don't take any steps to stop it. Others may not even recognize that they have been victims of sexual harassment.
